Some people wait four years for a moment like this.
After initially putting it on the market in 2017 and not having a single offer since, Kelly Clarkson has finally found a buyer for her mansion in Tennessee at $6.95million.
The New York Post reported on Friday that the 39-year-old singer's estate went into contract on April 19 which was over three months after the American Idol season 1 winner slashed the price according to property records.

The property was originally listed for $8.75million in 2017 and gradually decreased throughout the four years on the market before Clarkson ended up cutting the last price by $550K from $7.5million in January amid news of her divorce.
Kelly Clarkson Reveals She Once 'Destroyed' a Trash Can While Pooping Backstage: 'It Was Bad'
"It happens!" Clarkson told Clint Black about the incident. "What are you supposed to do?"While talking to country star Clint Black about his new album Out of Sane and his upcoming talk show, Kelly Clarkson revealed that she pooped in a trash can backstage before a show.
She had purchased the home - which features seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms - in 2012 for $2.86million which was just a year before marrying Brandon Blackstock in 2013.
Clarkson cited irreconcilable differences as she filed for divorce last June as the former couple share two children together: six-year-old daughter River Rose and five-year-old son Remington Alexander.

Just inside the front door, there's an elegant double-staircase leads into the grand foyer that's set up family entertaining.

Fact or Fiction: Messy All-NBA selections, Sixth Man Jordan Clarkson and a Cade Cunningham coin flip
Each week during the 2020-21 NBA season, we will take a deeper dive into three of the league’s biggest storylines in an attempt to determine whether the trends are based more in fact or fiction moving forward. Nikola Jokic, Stephen Curry and Giannis Antetokounmpo are locks for the First Team. Slotting Joel Embiid and Rudy Gobert into the Second and Third Team center spots behind Jokic should be easy enough, but even that comes with complications. The league kept a center spot on its All-NBA teams, but made Jokic and Embiid eligible for both center and forward.

Clarkson and Blackstock have been waging a legal war against one another since October, when Kelly's former father-in-law Narvel Blackstock filed a lawsuit alleging she still owed them $1.5 million in commissions and $4 million from her paycheck for judging The Voice.
Kelly fired back with a counter-suit, claiming that her agreement with the Blackstocks and their company Starstuck Entertainment should be voided and she should be reimbursed for all prior fees because they were providing 'illegal services' under California's Talent Agencies Act for working without a license and failing to act in the 'best interest' of their client.
'We stand by our allegations that Starstruck violated the Talent Agencies Act, despite their boilerplate denials, and we look forward to trying the case before the Labor Commissioner in August,' Clarkson's team shared in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.
Seth Rogen came up with the famous 'ahh, Kelly Clarkson' line in '40-Year-Old Virgin'
Rogen explained to the singer how the joke came about during an appearance on "The Kelly Clarkson Show."The singer and now daytime talk show host said she can't go anywhere without someone yelling out, "Ahh, Kelly Clarkson!" - the famous line Steve Carell yells while getting his chest waxed in the 2005 comedy, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
Blackstock thoroughly denied Clarkson's accusations in November filings with the California Labor Commission that emerged online Tuesday.
He disputed claims he and his father has scammed the artist by tacking exorbitant fees onto his company Starstruck Entertainment's bills.
But Brandon's attorneys Bryan J. Freedman and Jesse A. Kaplan argued that they are not subject to California's Talent Agencies Act because they did not perform their work in the Golden State.
Kelly's lawyer Edwin McPherson believes that the American Idol alum is entitled to all of the money as well as other 'things of value' that Brandon was paid while acting as her agent.
The Blackstocks' legal representation further claimed any alleged violations that there is a one-year statute of limitations in the Talent Agencies Act, meaning even if Clarkson could prove her accusations it's possible for his lawyers to argue she can only claim commissions paid within the year prior to her October 2020 filing. © Provided by Daily Mail ( © Provided by Daily Mail (
Blackstock is asking for Clarkson's petition to be dismissed and for her to pay his legal fees.
The legal battle is just the latest development amid Kelly's ongoing divorce from Brandon.
After seven years of marriage and two children together, the couple separated in summer of 2020.
Tennessee moves to the forefront with anti-transgender laws
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Conservative lawmakers nationwide introduced a flurry of anti-LGBTQ bills this year, but no state's political leaders have gone further than Tennessee in enacting new laws targeting transgender people. Lawmakers passed and Republican Gov. Bill Lee signed five new bills into law, consistently dismissing concerns that they discriminate against an already vulnerable population, that some of the laws are unworkable and that they could damage the state’s reputation. © Provided by Associated Press Colin Goodbred, a 22-year-old transgender student, poses on the campus of Dartmouth College, Friday, May 21, 2021, in Hanover, N.H.

Kelly has since been awarded primary physical custody of their two children.
The judge's ruling on custody prompted Blackstock to file additional legal documents seeking $436,000-a-month in support payments from Clarkson.
He is asking for $301,000 in spousal support and $135,000 in child support, according to TMZ.
He also requested that his soon-to-be ex-wife cover $2 million in legal fees. © Provided by Daily Mail ( Read more
